<p style='text-align: justify;'>A letter sent to Yešuʿa the Doctor ha-Sar b. Aaron the Doctor al-Mānī, who is studying in Cairo, by his cousin, Abū l-Ḥasan Judah, a teacher and court clerk, from Alexandria, c. beginning of the 13th century. The doctor strove to get an appointment in a hospital in his native city, Alexandria. The cousin advises the doctor to obtain letters of recommendation to a list of prominent figures there. He comments that whenever anyone declares he wants 'to read' medicine in Alexandria he is told that the reading has to be done in Cairo and, likewise that the <em>tazkiya</em> (certificate of good conduct) has to be obtained there. Mentions Joseph al-Baḡdādī and the judge R. Anatoli. </p>
